Mixed Bean Salad

Just because it’s getting colder outside doesn’t mean you have to eat root vegetables and beef all winter long. This is a fresh summer inspired meal that is perfect for a side dish or as a packed lunch for work or school.

What you will need:

  • 1 can of mixed beans (no salt added)
  • 1 cucumber diced
  • 1 large red tomato diced
  • Half a container of alfalfa sprouts (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tbs of EVOO
  • Half a lemon
  • Cayenne pepper, Sea salt and black pepper


  • In a large mixing bowl add together beans, cucumber, tomato, and sprouts
  • Next squeeze half a lemon over mixture and add in EVOO
  • As you stir, season salad with a pinch of sea salt, cayenne and black pepper to taste
  • Add with some cooked quinoa or chicken breast for dinner


    Optional: if you have some fresh herbs this is a perfect dish to add some into!
